Harriet Tubman’s first journey to Canada on the Underground Railroad is fraught with danger, harsh conditions, and uncertainty. In order to keep her disillusioned party of runaway slaves safe during the long journey, she bolsters their spirits by telling stories of freedom and singing spirituals. (Holt Elements of Literature, 2008)
